Liturgical Ministries

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God`s varied grace. (1 Peter 4:10)

Altar Society
This group of hard working ladies collects and arranges the flowers for the altar, cleans the sanctuary, washes the sacred vessels and linens and helps with the set up for Sunday Masses and Saturday weddings. They meet Saturday morning. Newcomers welcome!


Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
These people are appointed by the parish priest and are commissioned to perform the holy tasks assigned to them. Besides serving at Sunday Masses, Eucharistic Ministers are sometimes asked to bring the Eucharist to the homes of the sick. If this is something that you would like to be considered for, talk to Father Augustine.

Greeters
Many dedicated people – families, singles or couple - are needed at all the Sunday Masses to greet people as they enter the Church. Our vision is to have people at each entranceway to the Church with a friendly greeting. You need not sign up or be scheduled. Just arrive 15 minutes before Mass, take a place and share your smile. There are reservation signs to hold your space in Church, available at the Welcome Center.



Giftbearers
This is a wonderful way to celebrate a special occasion in your family. Sign up to bring the gifts to the altar at the offertory. Families, singles or couples are all welcome. There will be someone there to show you what to do. Sign up sheets are in the foyer.



Lectors
These are the people that do the readings at weekday and Sunday Masses. We encourage people from all ages to get involved. Being a part of the liturgy in this way will deepen your faith and help you grow in love for the Word of God. Workshops are offered for people interested in becoming a lector.


Ushers
Our ushers, both men and women, provide a valuable service in this large and growing parish. Many are needed at each of the weekend Masses to help with seating, take up the collections and be watchful to tend to the needs of the large assembly of people at each of the Masses. New volunteers are always welcome.
